The Georgia Section of ASHE awards two named scholarships to college students pursuing a degree in civil engineering, civil engineering technology, or other transportation or construction related fields from a Georgia school. These scholarships would not be possible without the support of the ASHE and engineering community in the form of donations and the sponsorship and attendance at our ASHE social fundraisers held throughout the year. For more information about either of these awards, follow the links below.
Babs Abubakari Memorial Scholarship
The 2016 Babs Abubakari Memorial Scholarship has been awarded. Please check back in Fall 2017 for the next scholarship.
The scholarship was christened the Jim McGee scholarship by the ASHE Board
in 2004 after the passing of Jim McGee. Jim McGee was known for his
wisdom, judgment, professionalism and integrity. During his 45 years in the
transportation industry, Mr. McGee contributed to countless projects that
were vital to the success of Georgia's infrastructure.
From 1951 to 1955, Mr. McGee served in the United States Navy as a Naval Aviator. After his service
in the armed forces, Mr. McGee received bachelors and masters degrees in
Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech. While working on his masters, he
began a career of 32 years with the Georgia Department of Transportation.
While at the Department, his responsibilities included Senior Materials Test
Engineer, State Highway Maintenance Engineer, Director of Administration in
the Office of State Aid, Director of Planning and Programming, and Deputy
Commissioner. Following his distinguished career in the public sector, Mr.
McGee entered the consulting engineering practice, where he was essential to
the growth and success of the transportation department at Jordan, Jones,
and Goulding. In 2002, he co-founded McGee Partners, where he served as
Chairman and CEO.
Jim McGee was a skillful engineer, a good businessman,
a devoted family man, and a true friend to many.
